Special Topics in Biology: Introduction to Marine Field Ecology (Cr.3)
56:120:535:Sec.H1:05530 Florida Keys
7/7-8/13 Time by arrangement; trip to Florida 7/8-7/17
Vagelli, Alejandro
Email: avagelli@camden.rutgers.edu
Pre-requisite: course in ecology or marine biology or by permission of instructor. Off campus course held in Florida Keys. Additional fees will apply. Trip is July 8-July 17. This is an intensive field 10-days summer session course which will be held at Sugarloaf and Big Pine Keys, FL. The course main goal is to provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience in marine biology research. The fieldwork will focus primarily on ecological, taxonomic, and conservation aspects of main communities such as seagrass beds, coral reefs, mangrove forests, and sandy flats. Students will become familiar with field methods for ecological and conservation studies, including sampling techniques and census work. Students will design and conduct field observations and experiments aimed to answer questions concerning specific topics. Topics will be assigned/chosen two months prior to the fieldwork, and will include trophic structure, reproductive strategies, recruitment, fish behavior, coevolutionary relationships, energy cycling, and detrimental impacts due to human activities. In addition to the fieldwork (which includes evening discussions), the course involves a presentation and/or report summarizing the results of field projects. Potential field trips include: Lew Key Marine Sanctuary (a snorkel trip to a protected coral reef) and Mote Marine Lab.

Cross-listed with 50:350:393.

We will place emphasis on the philosophical and political contexts of the writers. A particular interest of the course, informed by the candidacy examination reading lists, is in the long poem—from The Waste Land, "Sunday Morning," portions of The Cantos, and The Bridge up to and including Ginsberg’s "Howl," Ashbery’s "The Skaters" and Ammons’ Tape for the Turn of the Year. We will also attempt to produce a synthetic view of the Romantic and the Modernist periods as reflected in criticism of the past two decades. Two papers and a class presentation.

Staff
Email: seduffy@scarletmail.rutgers.edu
By permission of instructor. This course is designed to assist students in developing their thesis proposal with the guidance of a faculty mentor. At the beginning of the semester, each student chooses a faculty adviser and works closely with the adviser to formulate and refine a proposal. The proposal may develop as an apprenticeship with an experienced researcher, as when a student works under the direction of an adviser to test a hypothesis of mutual interest; or a student may work with an adviser to develop a more independent research question, which the adviser is willing and able to supervise. While developing the thesis proposal, students participate in the Research/Fieldwork Practicum seminar in which their evolving proposals are discussed with the practicum instructor and other students who are taking the course. Through presentations by other students in the seminar, instructor comments and suggestions, and active participation in group discussion and feedback, each student gains knowledge of research strategies and methods used in different settings. The grade is based one-half on the recommendation of the faculty adviser, and one-half on fulfilling the requirements of the practicum classes.

Wright, Debra
Email: ddwright@camden.rutgers.edu
COURSE CANCELLED 5/19/14.
Online course support fee of $100. This course focuses on the prospects and problems of designing, conducting, and utilizing evaluations as part of the policy process. Inquiries about public programs programs abound. Are the funds being spent commensurate with the outcomes produced? Are there better ways to address and solve society’s problems? The ultimate choices about programs–decisions about whether to continue, modify, or terminate–are policy choices. Political leaders, public administrators, and the public need as much high quality information as possible in order to make intelligent choices. During this course, students will be introduced to basic concepts of evaluation including: various theoretical and philosophical perspectives, issues related to design, measurement and utilization, and ethical problems associated with social science research in the real world setting. This course will provide students with a set of basic skills required in the evaluation process. In addition, this course will help students recognize that: program objectives are seldom as clearly stated or agreed upon as would be desirable for evaluative purposes; no program operates in isolation from other social or economic events; and that data and measurement techniques generally are less adequate than desired. It is the adaptation of theory and the ideal to the actual situation that the practitioner of program evaluation must master.
